Stella Artois, Inbev Belgium

Stella Artois is a 5.2% ABV global lager first brewed in Leuven, Belgium in 1926 as a Christmas brew, and named Stella after the Latin for "star."

Although Belgium is best known internationally for its ales, the so-called table beers the bottom-fermented pilsner lagers such as Stella Artois head the list for domestic consumption, making up almost 75% of Belgian beer production. Stella is promoted as an international brand by its brewer, InBev. In its home market of Belgium, however, it is marketed, priced and sold as a regular lager. It is brewed in Belgium and the United Kingdom, as well as other countries, including Australia. Much of the Stella Artois exported from Europe is currently produced at InBev"s brewery in Belgium, and packaged in the Beck"s brewery in Bremen, Germany.

The Anno 1366 on the Stella Artois logo refers to the origin of brewing in the city of Leuven. The city"s tax records dated 1366 mention the existence of a local brewpub called Den Hoorn, ("Hoorn" in Flemish meaning "Horn" in English, as is represented in the logo on the beer label).
